As a writer and reader, I spend a lot of time in my head. I imagine, daydream, and as Pooh says, “think, think, think.” Perhaps you share a fondness for deep thinking?
I get excited for long car rides to plan plots, characters, or scene sequences. (And to sing very, very loudly to the radio. I’m a chart-topper in the car.) At those times when I’m in my head, I manipulate the destiny of my story in any way I want. In this respect, fiction writing is a great career for a control freak like me. However, the business of fiction writing can be challenging for those of us who like every duck in a neat row.
